Enter the Denon AVR-X8500H

If you’ve been patiently waiting for the next generation in home theatres, the wait is over. Enter the Denon AVR-X8500H, the world’s first 13.2 channel AV channel receiver.

Yip, when Denon says that the creation of products that deliver total quality enjoyment is what drives them, they really mean it – and it shows in this latest unveiling.

And, they didn’t just unveil it anywhere. They uncovered it at CES (Consumer Electronics Show), which is the global stage for the very latest in tech innovations. Home theatre was a key theme this year and all the big players were there to impress. Denon stood out with the AVR-X8500H.

The AVR-X8500H, which as we said is the world’s first 13.2 channel AV channel receiver, is going to hit the sweet spot with serious audiophiles as it supports DTS:X and Dolby Atmos, with up to 7.1.6 or 9.1.4 speaker configurations, and 13.1 channel Auro-3D configuration. Eight HDMI inputs and three HDMI outputs provide flexible customisation for home theatres, and built-in HEOS technology works with Amazon Alexa for wireless whole-home audio and voice control.

If you thought you had the best in home theatre, think again. The Denon AVR-X8500H takes home theatres to extraordinary levels of performance with support from these object-based audio formats.
